Greater Boston is a bi-monthly full-cast audio drama set in the Boston metro area, blending the real and the unreal, the historical and the fantastical. It all begins with the death of Leon Stamatis, a man so enamored of predictability that the least hint of uncertainty makes life unbearable. But by leaving the world, he has irrevocably changed it.

The show is written and produced by Alexander Danner and Jeff Van Dreason.

This week, we get a glimpse into Leon’s mind in "Highlights from Leon’s Calendar;" Pandabear Poletti sends a letter to human resources in "On the Advice of Mary Wollstonecraft;" And Charlotte does the best work of her life in "The Background Artist." In Episode 6: Sage Council.
